, particularly the provision for detaining americans without due process, if obama had not signed that provision, i would be voting for obama as well. as fate would have it, i am going to be voting for gary johnson. that is all i have to say. host: back to the democratic line, betty, good morning. caller: good morning. thank you for your program. my comment, mitt romney is a businessman. he thinks business, he thinks capital gains, he thinks profits. our president is the president. he thinks about all the people, everything he has ever done, with his hands tied by congress, he tried to do for the people. although bomb -- all that mitt romney wants to do is be president. it is a joke to him. this country is not a joke. the world is not a joke. people are suffering. people have dreams and aspirations. our president is sworn to make our dreams come true. i feel like mitt romney and paul ryan, what they wanted to do as far as cutting social security, cutting the lunch programs for the poor kids -- sometimes that is the only thing they have to eat all day. host: words from betty there, from baltimore
four murders of americans in libya were planned, but for days the obama administration labeled the terror attack spontaneous. now one of the most powerful house members says someone has unwelcome visit. we begin with a high ranking lawmaker calling for the resignation of u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice. this is all over the way the white house responded to the deatdeaths of those four americs killed at our u.s. consulate in libya. fresh fallout tonight. congressman peter king, republican from new york, heads the powerful house homeland security committee, saying rice must step down because the account she gave in the days and hours following the attack was plain wrong. here he is earlier today on fox. >> either ambassador was deliberately misleading the american people or she showed and demonstrated such a lack of mr. king says several people with the administration. so did the intelligence change, then, days after the attack, or what? >> well, as you said, fox news has sources that say intelligence officials knew within a day, one day, that it was a terror at
>> the anti-american protests were raging across the middle east as a result. so what president obama did was, listen, the united states definitely approve of the video. but when we are talking about dma acy in the region, this is a part of that. >> the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression. it is more speech. the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and bl blasphemy. >> some of the leaders say we need to have some international law banning blasphemy and the anti-religious rhetoric. not just in their own countries where it exists but around the world. listen to the president, hamid karzai, talking about this subject. >> such acts cannot be called freedom of speech or explex. equally, they cannot give reason for the protests to be used inside the terrible losses of lives. >> what president obama did then was said, listen, if you want to have blasphemy be horrible, then you have to talk about a church being burned in israel and if the holocaust is -- this type of rhetoric is horrible but we all have to speak out about it. >> it highlights educational difference. ev
to find work. 15% of americans today are living in poverty. president obama came in with one party rule, and was able to pass nearly every item on his agenda. what we ♪ you do ♪ something to me ♪ that nobody else could do i knew it'd be tough on our retirement savings, especially in this economy. but with three kids, being home more really helped. man: so we went to fidelity. we talked about where we were and what we could do. we changed our plan and did something about our economy. now we know where to go for help if things change again. call or come in today to take control of your personal economy. get free one-on-one help from america's retirement leader. oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good call on those mugs. can't let 'em see what you're drinking. you know, i'm glad we're both running a nice, clean race. no need to get nasty. here's your "honk if you had an affair with ta
. the economy remains a top issue for voters. and many americans are anticipating a victory from the president. pew research reports 51% of voters say they think obama will win in tonight's broadcast. an analyst with the sunlight foundation tells first business that the pressure is on for the romney campaign. "in the polls it looks like romney is falling behind and falling further behind in the battleground states. although nationally it's a very close election, he's been hammered in the battleground states. the debates can be a great equalizer for him, but also that increases the pressure on him, whereas i think we are going to see barack obama playing a lot more defense." that was bill allison of the sunlight foundation. at long last, a wall street firm is being sued for fraud in connection with the housing crash. the suit was filed monday by the new york attorney general. the lawsuit holds jp morgan chase responsible for action by wall street firm bear stearns, which it acquired in 2008. the sold bear stearns prior to the housing collapse from 2006-2007. the attorney general says investors
there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is, even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people, receiving social security, who have paid into it their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as possible dependent on government, to keep voting democratic, is not succeeding. americans want to stand on their own feet. >> that is the craziest thing i ever heard of my life. you are accusing the president of
this on television or read it in the newspaper. ask yourself if what romney and ryan are saying about obama and joe biden is true about medicare, why would the american medicare association endorsed our position. why would the hospital association. why would aarp in dorset? -- endorse it? they have no credibility on this issue. secondly what they do not tell you is equally as important as what they tell you. they do not tell you what they would do about medicare. the first thing they would do, if they took the action they are proposing to take were they to win on january of next year, you would eliminate the new benefit. $800 more for prescription drugs, wellness visits. it would also move medicare trust fund to insolvency in 2016, three years from now. what they really do not want to talk about any more, they do not want to tell you they are not for medicare. they are for vouchercare. this is a fact. they say it will not affect anybody on medicare now. it will not kick in for 10 years. if you are 55 years old, it will kick in. a couple of years ago, the intellectual gravelling of the right came up
. >> woodruff: president obama faced an international audience today against the backdrop of a reelection campaign at home and anti-american violence abroad. the president took the stage at the unitedded nations urging the assembledded leaders to address the wave of anger across the muslim world. >> the attacks of last two weeks are not simply an assault on america. they're also an assault on the very ideals upon which the united nations was founded. if we are serious about these ideals, we must speak honestly about the deeper causes of the crisis. because we face a choice between the forces that would drive us apart and the hopes that we hold in common. >> woodruff: at least 50 people have died in the violence. initially sparkd by an anti-islamic video. and u.s. ambassador chris stevens was killed in an assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. the president condemned the video, but he insisted there is no justification for mindless violence. >> given the power of faith in our lives and the passion that religious differences can inflame, the strongest weapon against hateful speec
high level of african american, latino and young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. >> obama campaign senior advisor david axel rod told fox "public polls are widely variant in their sampling and methodology so hard to make the case when they all point in one direction they are all wrong but we are planning for a close race as we always have." another democratic strategist offered this assessment. >> this thing can move back and forth three and four times between now and november 6. from romney you try to create that momentum and he still has time to do it. >> reporter: the average of comebacks was roughly 5% and in some cases it was the debate that move the needle. shannon? >>> ambassador are rice should resign but also we should investigate and find out how high up this went and i would hope that the administration itself would voluntarily come forward and say why they gave out this false information. >> shannon: democrats on the h hill and in the obama administration pushing back against a call from republican congressman st. petersburger ambassador are susan rice toor. re
things and do things and have an impact on the american influence that is really different from what president obama was doing? >> unfortunately my basic thesis is there's a tremendous degree of continuity at all times between presidents that we already saw i would say, and jessica and i have a running discussion i was going to say argument, disagreement which has begun i think probably around january of 2009. but i would say that many people have been struck. even "the new york times" rights of the this continuity between obama and george w. bush for that matter. so, any president in my view only changes things 10 degrees one way, 10 degrees the other. there will be some issues. obviously, you know, there's no question that romney takes a different view on how to deal with russia and you probably see a different policy towards russia. on iran is a harder call and one thing we have not spoken about, and i think maybe you were going to get to it eventually -- >> we are only 25 minutes in. >> okay. since i considered it to be not a and unreasonable possibility regardless of who was in
to the american people as what it was, an obviously planned terrorist attack on the 11 the anniversary of the september 11th, 2001, attacks, suddenly obama looks like he screwed up. he did. the state department and the administration let down their guard on september of all days. the response was to blame it on the video which was useful to get people to cover the operation. blame it on the video. do not mention the word "december report." insist it wasn't pre-planned. anyone can tell you there were serious ambushes and attacks and obviously heavy weapons. it was obviously pre-planned. >>neil: enough pre-planned for the ambassador himself to worry if his diary for his own safety and the growing dangers around him. can we get our hands on cables to the state department that might haved of that or confirmed that? obviously, he was worried. >>guest: we can get our hands on the cables. after the election. this administration does not have a classic foreign policy or security or military policy or even domestic policy. everything is politics. rebound doesn't have a national security council
"obama"] you know, my opponent is a big believer in top down economics. he thinks that if we just spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts for the wealthiest americans, if we get rid of regulations on wall street, then all our problems will be solved and jobs and prosperity will trickle down on all of you, debts will disappear, we will live happily ever after. there is only one problem with that. we tried that in the ticket before i became president. it didn't work. top down economics never works. we don't need to double down on the same trickle-down policies that got us into this mess in the first place. we don't need policies that just help folks at the very top. that is not how the country grows. that is not how we succeed. we succeed when at the middle class gets a bigger, when more people have a chance to get ahead and live up to their god- given potential. far when we very have leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of the victims who don't take responsibility for their lives. let me tell you, i have been to nevada in line. you guys may get tired of me. but as i travel arou
and insufficiently appreciative of the benefits. barack obama is the candidate in 2008. said of the constitution it has worked pretty well for 200 years. among others things the complaisant assurance by the first african-american president requires overlooking a brutal civil war that lasted four years and killed 750,000 people. a war that i am sure many of you experience as having occurred between semesters, when the first semester of american history that you might have taken concluded in 1860 and picked up again perhaps in 1868 or 1877. this is the way american constitutional law is tops. it appears by magic in constitutional courses with literally almost no time spent on how we got either the thirteenth or the fourteenth amendment which is much closer to chairman mao's notion that howard including constitutional power grows out of the barrel of a gun than it could be understood simply in the model of the 1787 constitution that would suggest any amendments would come through a nice, calm and peaceful article 5 process where we deliberate on what would make us better and two thirds of congress
